Dvinsky breaks record with 218th start
Dvinsky has set a British modern-era record for competing in the most races with his 218th start at a meeting in Wolverhampton on Friday (September 21st).
The record-breaking 11-year-old is in his tenth season and was ridden for the 27th time by Tom McLaughlin.
In doing so he beat Sharp Hat's five-year-old record upon finishing ninth in the 32Red.com Handicap on Friday.
During his career, Dvinsky has won a total of 19 races and amassed more than £117,000 in prize-money.
This was Dvinsky's 34th appearance at Wolverhampton, a course in which he has come out victorious twice and placed a further nine times.
McLaughlin said the other horses went out a bit hard during the race, which is why he struggled in ninth place.
Trainer Paul Howling told At the Races: "He is better at Kempton but we came here to break the record and we will see what is around. He's still in good heart and will win again."
